Want to use your skills in participatory evaluation and learning for impact to play a vital role in making clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone everywhere? 

Join WaterAid as an evaluation consultant for the HSBC Water Programme to change normal for millions of people so they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good. 

In 2012, the HSBC Water Programme (HWP) was launched, bringing together the expertise of WaterAid, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Earthwatch to help tackle the global water challenge. WaterAid is implementing the programme in six countries to transform lives and economies through increased access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).

The programme will end in March 2020 and WaterAid is undertaking an evaluation to assess WaterAid’s contributions to the programme and how the learning generated can be applied. 

We are looking for a consultant to lead the evaluation and deliver the following outputs by end of April 2020:

  1. Evaluation report 
  2. 6-12 case studies from across the six countries 
  3. Presentation of findings and recommendations

The consultancy is expected to require 70 days between September 2019 and April 2020.

The evaluation will use a participatory and collaborative methodology with the country, regional and UK teams involved in the programme. It is expected that the evaluation lead will work remotely with some meetings at WaterAid’s office in London

To be successful, you’ll need: 

  • Extensive evaluation experience in international development contexts
  • Ability to engage with, listen to and learn from a broad range of stakeholders
  • Ability to write concise reports underpinned by rigorous critical analysis
